Pledge $5 to get wfmu a new cd player
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07am Stevel:

What an opener!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10am G:

Step away from the haterade, Paul. That CD player is museum quality :)
  11:15am Hackensack Slim:

Had me fooled. Thought it was a Mose Allison song I hadn't heard before. Still good though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am jmd:

@Hackensack--That's exactly what my wife was saying when you posted your comment! Crazy.
  11:21am mark in toronto:

first ever (and last ever?) bagpipes in a pop/rock song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Mike East:

Definitely #1 hit weather today. Morning, Michael
  11:28am Adam:

bagpipes - It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll - not quite a pop song, but close
  11:35am mark in toronto:

@adam - yes, of course, i stand corrected
Avatar 11:35am duke:

To whom it may concern:
No F'n way
Harper Collins

I love the Magic Kids
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Mike East:

Always read the ny'er restaurant reviews, but much like the movie reviews, who writes it determines how annoyed I get. Your daughter should get a job there. I can't believe she used the word melancholy.
  11:42am mark in toronto:

Michael, shouldn't the April Stevens songs also credit Nino Tempo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Stevel:

Was "I'm a People" any sort of response to "The Monkey Speaks His Mind?"
  11:49am mark in toronto:

a perfect #1 song is "Don't Tell Me" by the Incredible Casuals
Avatar 11:50am Belinda:

Good choice, Mark!
Avatar 11:51am Belinda:

Aptly ferocious!
  11:54am Eddy in Australia:

Loved the pizzeria takedown. When is Junebug going to do record reviews on the show?
  12:00pm Paul:

Love me some Bill Fox. When is the next LP being reissued?!
  12:04pm mark in toronto:

@Belinda - thanks! no avatar?
Avatar 12:05pm Belinda:

Michael!!! Chandler is ready for the call! Standing by.
Avatar 12:07pm KP:

Good day, Michael
  12:15pm zoot:

Chandler Travis! Hooray! Still got all my Incredible Casuals vinyl and my cherished Travis, Shook, and the Club Wow. Keep doing what you do, Mr. Travis.
Avatar 12:17pm Belinda:

Steve Shook even had a record release party last night and reunited for a bit of Travis Shook, too!
  12:17pm drr:

Slap Shot has the correct music on DVD, but, yeah, the VHS version had music that was "like" the original...unsettling.
  12:25pm Betsy Nichols:

Hey Michael, this Emitt Rhodes toon sounds awesome!
Avatar 12:27pm Michael Shelley:

Thanks Betsy - as do your jingles!
  12:32pm mark in toronto:

@Belinda - is your avatar a 7" vinyl? what are the songs? what does Deke Dickerson do on it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Mike East:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Julie:

Two guys is the Kinks, two girls is Heart, so why not?
Avatar 12:58pm Belinda:
